    It's been that price for at least a year, maybe longer. If people are willing to pay it, they're going to charge it. A lot of the price is import fees.

    Looks like the Studio Classic might be about to go up by another $100 again. One can only presume the SV20 and 2525H also.

    Notice these things never increase by like $30 or $40? It's always an ass raping increment. That's why it's hard for me to believe this stuff is solely geopolitics/inflation. Feels like the manufacturers are grabbing more for themselves along the way.

    Better buy them now then. Just picked up a floor model SV20 last week for $1250. Pretty soon they are gonna be $1500 AND no one is going to have stock.|

    I could be wrong but I don’t recall the 100hr ever being $799 in the States, I’m pretty sure it was $899 when it was released in 2018.

    That’s the same price that the SC20 combo was when they were released in 2019!

    This all has to do with basic economics.
    SUPPLY AND DEMAND!

    These Studio amps are HOT HOT HOT and Marshall knows it. They are selling like hot cakes since their release and Marshall is probably going to see how high they can bump the price and still have them sell like hot cakes.

    They will stop will sales slows down... So the price is probably going to continue to rise.

    As long as I can keep buying up my 3210s, y'all have fun with those SV20s and SC20s.

    Laybyed my white SC20 for 1599 the other week, which was 100 bucks more than the black.
    My white one equates to about 1215 us dollars.
    Nice to not be the one paying the most for gear for a change.

    That’s the head, not the combo correct? What country are you in?

    Fender had its best sales year ever in 2020 with other guitar manufacturers reporting a spike in sales as well. I'm not the least bit surprised things might cost more at this point considering the vast majority of those guitars needed amps to go with them. Including supply chain disruptions I'm amazed prices aren't higher.

    I purchased an SV20 this AM, I also too think the prices of these amps are going to go up. They are constantly sold out from what I understand. Able to snag one at just under $1200 plus tax new from GC.

    Actually, I bought my DSL100HR from Sweetwater for $749 in Feb of 2018, and that was the posted web price, not negotiated...

    Does anyone have a hunch on how the popularity of these 20 watt marshalls will effect the +/- of value on vintage marshall 50 watters? Especially with the new price increases
